Saint Elisabeth of Hungary.

Today we commemorate the feast of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary. A woman who perfectly fulfilled the meaning of her name – the origin of her name is Elizabeta, and means “God is generous.”. She is most often depicted holding bread and roses in her arms. Even in my childhood, this miracle of hers appealed to me. I sat under her statue and imagined how she boldly walked to the poor, gave away, took care of them, and God helped her in this. When needed, he turned the bread into roses to protect her so she could do even more good. Even in today’s gospel, we see a parallel in generosity about the fact that our task is to be like Elizabeth. Not to collect but to give away.
